Weekend Roundup Stuff

Alabama Weekend Roundup: Weekend Of June 1-3, 2018

Time for the Alabama Weekend Roundup. This weekly post highlights different and unique events across Alabama or near Alabama that you should consider attending.  So for this weekend, here are six events you should consider going too!

June 1-2 – Rock The South – Heritage Park – Cullman, AL

April 27, 2011 was a day nobody in this area will ever forget. Tornadoes ripped across our great state and took precious lives and ripped apart everything familiar. Since then, our area has grown together and brought out the best in all of us.  Originally intended to be a one-year celebration of recovery from that horrific day, Rock the South has continued to expand to become a massive celebration of this area and what it has to offer. Since the first event in 2012, Rock the South has given over $500,000 to multiple community partners including Cullman City Parks and Recreation, The Link of Cullman County, Cullman Caring for Kids and many more.
